The film seems to have two meanings to its title, cruel and unusual. The first obviously being the type of punishment each individual faces having to relive their horrible crimes everyday. But the second being the actual crimes themselves. Drowning children, mutulating and bludgening ones parents, committing suicide in front of ones own kids, all things cruel and unusual. Potentially saying the punishment matches the crime. See more »

I don't want to say too much about this film since I feel like the less you know about it going in the better.
For such a low budget they really did a great job with this. All the actors did a very good job, the story was excellent, and even the small soundtrack was memorable. The highlight of the movie is the original story, it's really an interesting idea and the movie does a perfect job of bringing the idea to life.
I'll keep the review very short by saying that this is definitely worth seeing. I don't think it is an amazing film, but it is clever and very original, two things that many higher budget films fail at achieving.
